They were discovered in 2015 with a mash-up of cover songs that broke the Internet: 64 million views for the video “Summer 2015” where they were seen stringing hits together, accompanying each other on the violoncello with a beach scenery. The three childhood friends (even since they were toddlers: Lucie, Elisa and Juliette have known each other since they were in kindergarten in Saint-Denis) have not been idle. They recorded a first album of cover songs (ironically dubbed En attendant l’album) and another one including original songs whose release is awaited impatiently. But in particular they have been touring ceaselessly throughout France, carving out for themselves a scenic reputation that has won them a “Victoire de la Musique de la révélation scène”. They’re expected at the Opéra Garnier for a supercharged concert where they will play their new songs and covers of which they alone have the secret, with their virtuoso vocal harmonies that set them off from all pseudo-singers of the FM band.
Opening act: Anna Kova
Anna Kova was bathed in music at an early age and developed her talents far from France. Encouraged by a grandmother who was a musician and who gave her the first piano lessons, it was at nothing less than the Berklee College of Music in Boston that this pretty brunette chose to complete her post-conservatory training. Back in Paris with a single soul hip hop under her arm (“My Heart Ain’t Wrong”), she worked with a number of artists such as FA2L and J-Slow and released a single on Synapson, “All In You”. The title was an electro success during the summer of 2015 and allowed her to tour all over Europe with the group, the first parts of which she gallantly supplied. Anna Kova’s career was launched. An EP 5 titles later, she appears on the soundtrack of the film of Grand Corps Malade (“Patients”), television and radio stations fight over her, programmers perk up their ears. At the Monte-Carlo Sporting Summer Festival, a singer with communicative energy is discovered whose flow evokes Selah Sue and the grainy voice of a certain Amy Winehouse. References that for others would be crushing but that don’t frighten her at all. As the title of her single, “Believe”, puts it, Anna believes, and she’s absolutely right.
